try Tixati, if you just want a working bittorrent client :)


To bad it hurts your eyes looking at it to check the status of your downloads. it's like a bad early 90's website.

I had to stop using utorrent since it one day decided it was not going to let me download anything, at all for no apparent reason, regardless of what ever combination of settings I used.

Installed qBittorent, left everything alone and torrents were working almost instantly, so I recommend that.

Maybe try using the Scheduler and set the entire grid to limit the speed to 32 kB/s.

or 2.2.1, that is about the highest version you can go till the entire program goes to complete crap.


I feel that 1.6.1 was the last version before the whole program went down the gutter =)

utorrent 2.2.1, Deluge, Tixati.

Only good clients left.

2.2.1 has a few more features and improvements over 2.0.4 (namely magnet links being handled properly), but is slightly more bloated. However, all versions after it have failed to add anything substantial other than more bloat.

Deluge is the best client on Linux.

Tixati is the new kid in town, and he isn't half bad.

The first two are basically universally whitelisted among private trackers because they're considered purist.

I Still run Bitlord 1.1
I use qBittorrent, and sometimes just for the hell of it, I'll take the torrent file and open it in bitlord (But that's because I worked out how to change some of the default settings and get some crazy speeds out of it, when there were enough seeding) 2.3 or 2.9 meg a sec (tho qBit is still the fastest I've had, I've seen peakes of 6 or 7 meg on that... the bitlord I kept for sentimental reasons((Had it for too long)))

OP clearly doing something wrong. Been using uTorrent for years on many many systems and have never had this "bug". Perhaps he should try configuring it properly instead of bitching about it when he's the only one having it and never showing pics.

I completely agree.

If not, just make a VM and install ONLY uTorrent there. This bug does not exist.

I stopped using uTorrent the moment I saw ads in it. People should just buy an el chepo seed box and ftp download from it like there is no tomorrow!
